The Energy Bill Relief Scheme

We would like to take this opportunity to reassure our prospective and existing customers and clarify the following on the Energy Bill Relief Scheme (EBRS):

  • The Energy Bill Relief Scheme (EBRS) applies to fixed contracts agreed on or after 1st December 2021 as well as to deemed, variable and flexible tariffs and contracts. It will apply to energy usage from 1st October 2022 to 31st March 2023, running for an initial six-month period for all non domestic energy users..
  • All energy suppliers will apply the same discount. This discount will automatically appear on your statements. Customers do not need to apply for the scheme or contact us.
  • The BEIS department recommends all customers continue to enter into fixed price agreements as normal to shield businesses from future wholesale price increases. This way we can ensure all our customers are protected from the volatility in the current wholesale market.
  • For customers who qualify for the Energy Bill Relief Scheme we kindly ask all qualifying customers to provide us with monthly gas and / or electricity meter reads until end of the scheme. This should be done ideally on the first day of the month or no later than the 10th.This will be a great help to get your bills as accurate as possible and ensure we apply the right discount throughout the scheme period.

P272 Does Have a Big Impact on Certain Businesses


It doesn’t have the most inspiring title but P272 does have a big impact on certain businesses.

That’s because they will have been moved to half-hour, or HH, metering so their bills will be more accurate and offer more information about how they use energy.

For many firms, the switch has been a positive move and all of them, they tend to be larger energy users, should already have been moved to the new meters.

Essentially, the industry will class its business customers within categories that are dependent on how much energy they use and these categories are known as ‘load profiles’.

The load profile is a method to reflect the firm’s use of energy through the year.

P272 and how it affects your business

If you have never heard of P272 and how it affects your business then it may be that you are not considered to be a large energy user but if you are in a load profile class of 05 to 08 then you will, or should have, have been switched.

These numbers can be found on your meter and are in the top left-hand corner of the number plate.

The new HH meters will collect the information every 30 minutes and send it to the energy supplier so that the firm’s energy bills are accurate. For those firms affected by P272 then there are no more estimated bills.

However, it’s important to appreciate that the P272 switch hasn’t been created for the sake of it since it will help firms become more energy-efficient. These efficiencies will help to lower their usage and their costs.

It’s also important to appreciate that the information from the new meters can be used by a potential new supplier who will have an accurate reflection of your firm’s needs and can then tailor a quote to suit.

Business owner with questions about P272

Indeed, it may be that you are a business owner with questions about P272 and are looking for answers and the easiest way for doing this is to contact someone who understands how the market works and what the benefits of installing half hourly meters are.

The main issue to appreciate about P272 is the move by the government is to encourage greater competition in the supply of business energy and, as a consequence, help deliver lower prices for firms.

This is also a process for firms look at how much energy they are using and to see where they can make efficiencies and boost their environmental credentials as a result.
